HAIVO's Commitment to Inclusivity in AI: Arab Youth from Underprivileged Communities Find a Place in the Field through Data Annotation
Artificial intelligence is a rapidly growing field that has the potential to transform many industries and improve the lives of people around the world.
However, access to AI education and training can often be limited for those from underprivileged communities. This can make it difficult for young people from these communities to break into the field and pursue careers in AI.
One way that Arab youth from underprivileged communities can gain experience and skills in AI is by participating in data annotation projects. Data annotation involves labeling and categorizing data sets to make them more usable for AI algorithms. It is a crucial step in the development of many AI systems, and companies are often willing to pay for high quality data annotation services.
Launched by B.O.T - HAIVO is looking towards providing opportunities for Arab youth from underprivileged communities to gain experience and skills in artificial intelligence through data annotation projects while generating revenue to support themselves and their families.
By working on these projects, young people can learn about the underlying technologies and techniques used in AI and potentially use this knowledge to further their education and training in the field.
This project is possible through the support of Alfanar, UNICEF, DROSOS and GIZ.
